Pecha Kuche, pronounced "peh-chak-cha," is named after a Japanese term for the sound of conversation, similar to "chit chat." The format has grown in popularity over the years, with over 180 countries worldwide participating in their own Pecha Kucha nights (check out the official website www.pecha-kucha.org).
This Friday, Intermedia Arts (2822 Lyndale Ave. S., Minneapolis) will play host a Minneapolis Pecha Kucha Night. Photographers, architects, cartographers, philosophers, and other great minds are slated to present their ideas, inform, and perhaps prompt dialogue after presentations. The event starts at 7 p.m. Admission is $5.
